Happy Pinterest Party Friday!!! Do you remember the desk and dresser from hell I was telling you about last week? Yeah, well they continued to torture me again this week. The desk, is finally completed and DebbieDoos is featuring it on her site today. The dresser (my nemesis) is still in the works. It's going to be a two-toned piece, and the drawers are finished and look beautiful. The body not so much. Let's just say there was a huge milkpaint disaster ... which had me start all over … [Read more...]

Happy Pinterest Party Friday!!! Do you ever have those weeks where you feel like you worked your tail off but got nothing accomplished? That was me this week. The unnamed child started school yesterday (she was not thrilled). Monday through Wednesday, we were running around getting her haircut, school clothes, school supplies, etc. Then yesterday I felt a little icky and had a fever. So, I took the time to get caught up on emails, comments and other computer stuff. So project-wise … [Read more...]

Happy Friday everyone!!  My gosh where did this week go? We got a bit more back to school clothes shopping accomplished, but haven't bought one thing as far as school supplies go! Although in high school they don't need as much as the little kids do, so you save money there. The clothes and college classes are more expensive though. The unnamed child is once again taking AP English and has known all summer that she had to read two big books and write essays on them. She starts school in … [Read more...]

Happy Friday everyone!!! I hope you all have had a great week! I just want to take a quick minute out to brag what freaking amazing readers I have! It meant so much to have all of you rally to my defense when I got the hateful comment from Rick this week. If you missed that day you can see it here. I was talking about blogger bullies (bullies that target bloggers ... not the other way around) and how I just don't understand the motivation behind nasty comments like that. I gave an … [Read more...]

Happy Friday everyone!!! Wow this week flew by! I think it took me a couple of days to get caught-up on sleep after Haven. Yes, I know I promised you a recap, and I promise I will deliver it on Monday. I went down to my booth yesterday, and it was so empty! I have some serious painting to get caught up on, but I am still finishing a couple of custom pieces, so today I am stenciling -- which is one of my least favorite things to do. I am working on a dresser for a nursery, and I know … [Read more...]

Happy Friday everyone!!! I wrote this in advance as I will be at the Haven blogging conference in Atlanta today. I will be taking classes for photography, branding, advertising, plus a lot more. Fun cocktail parties, and I basically get to hang out with 350 other people who do what I do. Topher and the unnamed child will be on their own at home, so I will be curious to see what the house looks like when I get back... I will fill you in next week with lots of pics and info on Haven! … [Read more...]

Happy 4th of July!!! I can't believe that we actually have nice weather on the 4th. For the last two years it has rained. My poor pup, Gracie, has been in a tizzy all week since she is terrified of fireworks. Tonight will be a long night for her. We are heading over to my brother's to see my little niece and have a BBQ with some of their neighbors.  The kiddo is making a dessert to bring tonight, Topher's mowing and I'm painting. Super exciting. I just want to thank every one of my … [Read more...]

Happy Friday everyone!! I'm two weeks away from my blogging conference, so I am in major workout mode trying to get this bod a bit more toned-up before I go. The unnamed child and I worked out so hard today that every muscle in my body is screaming out in pain with every little movement. I'm not sure what hurts worse, going up the stairs or going down. I had to go to a meeting tonight and just sitting down caused a small little shriek that I had to hide with a fake cough. I will be … [Read more...]

Happy Friday everyone!! This week flew by! With family in town and babysitting my little niece for a couple of days, there were not enough hours in the day. On the bright side, with family coming over it forced me to get my house clean, but with a ten month old here all day today ... that will probably change. We are going to have a day full of very loud toys, and her big word is "uh-oh" which she will practice about 100 times during the day. She is such a cutie, and she is getting more … [Read more...]

Happy Friday everyone!! Do you have big plans for the weekend? We are doing a thorough cleaning around here:  carpets, dusting, bathrooms ... the whole shebang. Doesn't that sound exciting? My booth has been doing well, but now it looks like a ghost town, and I am trying to go as fast as I can to get it refilled. Until the unnamed child finds a job, I am paying her to help me with my pieces. She is getting to be a pretty good painter these days! We are hoping we can squeeze in some time … [Read more...]
